Students may change their registration (adding and/or dropping courses) during their allotted time slot during Advance Registration, and then from the conclusion of Advance Registration through the first few days (roughly a week) of the new semester. Check the Academic Calendar for the exact date when the Add Period ends. Under rare circumstances, students may request to add a course after the end of the normal Add Period; see the section on Late Add below.
The Drop Period, during which courses may be dropped without academic penalty, continues for an extended period of time after the Add Period has ended. See Dropping a Course for details.
Changes may be made on the Web. For instructions, go to Advance Registration on the Web.
Changes may also be made by filling out a paper Change of Registration form. The form can be obtained in the Office of the Registrar. Have your adviser sign the form and return it to the Office of the Registrar.
Under rare circumstances, students may request permission to add a course after the end of the normal Add Period. The request is made using a form that may be obtained from the Registrar's Office. The form requires the signatures of the course instructor, the academic adviser, and the Dean of the College or School offering the course.
